I have a paint stain that is set in my carpet! Please help me on what to use on the carpet to get it clean. What is the best thing to use?

I used paint remover once when I spilled a whole can of stain on my grey carpet. It took it right out but has a very stong odor. Test in a closet or something first and be sure to have your windows open.

I used to do new construction cleaning and always had to clean up paint messes/splatter/spills off the carpet before a walk through. I used "Goof Off". Its the one in the spray bottle, its a lower odor one then the ones in the cans. You can get it at Home Depot. Test it first in a closet area for your carpet. I would spray it on and let it soak for a few minutes then use a clean white towel to clean it up. Worked great everytime. Love the stuff!

Here is a link to their site. It has many uses for it on many different surfaces also.

A friend of mine is a professional carpet cleaner and he uses odorless mineral spirits to remove paint from carpet. You can buy it a a hardware store. Dab it on/off, don't rub and make sure you dispose of properly as not to cause spontaneous combustion.
